Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] EIP across zones
Date Mon, 18 Mar 2013 22:38:00 GMT
Thanks for this. I'd like to note that there is no evidence that AWS
maintains a separate pool of "Elastic Public IP" and "Ephemeral Public
IP". If we drop this phantom construct, then the feature is greatly
 - there are not 2 workflows to acquire a persistent public ip
 - there are no additional APIs
 - the only thing that needs to be done is to move the public ip resource
to the region level from the zone level
